Johannesburg - A man was killed, and several other people were injured in a three-car pile-up on the R23 between Heidelberg and Standerton, paramedics said on Saturday.

It appeared that the vehicles collided and skidded to a halt at the roadside after veering from the carriageway late on Friday night, Netcare911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks said in a statement.

One man was critically injured and was airlifted to hospital after being freed from the wreckage with the Jaws of Life.

A number of others were also injured but details of their conditions were not immediately available.

Provincial ambulances, fire fighters and Netcare911 paramedics attended the accident.
